NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray has returned after hurting his foot and heading to the locker room just before halftime.
Murray headed to the locker room soon after a 19-yard run on third-and-13 late in the second quarter Thursday night against Jacksonville. But he was back for the Titans' first drive of the third quarter, picking up 3 yards on his first carry. He got his fourth 100-yard rushing performance in the last six games later in the drive.
The NFL Offensive Player of the Year in 2014, Murray already had 82 yards on 13 carries and a touchdown . He came in leading the AFC with 633 yards rushing.
That left rookie Derrick Henry to take over, and the Titans took a 27-0 lead into halftime.
